    Have you ever tried to be that tipping point? to take that one spontaneous action of the myth that suddenly causes this avalanche of change? I bought into the childhood stories and tried multiple times, as a child and young adult, and it never worked.  Well, DUH, because I wasn't part of a community of activists.  Reality is that one person working alone can do very little.  One person working with a community of activists can accomplish a great deal.  To cut the community of activists out of the myth cuts out every iota of the individual's REAL power.
